“Improve Faculty Buy-In” Webinar April 22nd 2PM EST Hosted by SimGHOSTS

simulation buy in

SimGHOSTS is hosting a webinar presented by Level 3 Healthcare staff on “Improving Faculty Buy-in” for your simulation programs. Although this presentation will be shared from the perspective of technical staff – it will be applicable to all those looking to improve utilization of simulation by faculty or clinical educators.

Today’s simulation control room is a great place to be innovative, but the challenge that many centers have is the educators who are asked to use these control computers, and AV solutions, are not necessarily comfortable with the high-level of technology being integrated. Simplifying Simulation can improve the faculty buy-in, Level 3 Healthcare shows you how. Presented vy Michael Young Benjamin Campagnola.

Date Time: April 22nd 2PM-3PM EST

About Michael

H. Michael Young has worked within the healthcare simulation field over the last nine years, first at Tarleton State University (TSU) and most recently for Level 3 Healthcare. In his role at TSU, Michael grew into a role best described as the simulation systems administrator, but like so many of those working in simulation operations enjoyed the more generic title of Simulation Technology Specialist. As an active member of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare, Mr. Young has served on the Board of Directors (2013), sat on the Accreditation Council, and currently serves on the Certification Committee as sub- committee Chair for the Certified Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialist (CHSOS). In addition to his responsibilities with Level 3 Healthcare, Mr. Young is also working on his doctorate (Ed.D.) at TSU.

Free Simulation Faculty Training Tools & Scenarios from UW

uw simulation toolkits

Today I am sharing a great free resource for clinical faculty of healthcare simulation programs put together by the University of Washington’s Health Sciences Interprofessional Education group with a grant from HRSA.

About UW’s Sim Center & Resource Website:

The University of Washington’s Center for Health Sciences Interprofessional Education, Research and Practice is dedicated to creating an atmosphere of openness and commitment to furthering collaboration between the different health care professions. The Center’s core faculty and staff are multidisciplinary health sciences faculty and clinicians from Dentistry, MEDEX, Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy who are passionate about advancing interprofessional communication to improve patient safety and quality improvement in healthcare.

This website is intended to be a resource for faculty and clinical educators and students. For faculty and clinical educators: Online modules teach the latest technologies and techniques for designing and enhancing an e-learning course, designing and implementing simulation in your curriculum, using telehealth to enhance communication, using informatics to manage and communicate data, learning team communication strategies and more. For students: Learn more about interprofessional learning and research opportunities at the University of Washington, including current courses, upcoming training activities, the University’s IHI Open School Chapter for patient safety and quality improvement, and the Center’s upcoming events.

Out of the closet and into the Sim Lab!

Until the summer of 2008, the nursing department at El Camino had literally a closet full of expensive simulation equipment but no clearly defined simulation program.   Faculty complained that it took too much time and effort to drag the equipment into the lab and set it all up.  Anyway, why use the manikin to teach Foley catheter insertion when a hip model would work just as well?

Two years later we have a thriving simulation program and a dedicated simulation lab.  How did we move out of the closet and into the simulation lab?  Presented in this article are two key components of a successful simulation program!
